What is a ReStore?

A ReStore is a fundraising division of the Habitat for Humanity affiliate. Donations are accepted from individuals and businesses in the community, and are sold at discounted prices, 50 to 70%, of the original value. The ReStore provides the affiliates operational revenue and additional funding generated by the ReStore goes directly to the house building goals.

ReStore History

In September 1992, the first Habitat for Humanity ReStore in the U.S. opened its doors in Austin, Texas. At that time, the Habitat ReStores were known to sell building materials only. Today, with over 600 stores strong in 3 countries and growing, the Habitat ReStores sell everything from household items to furniture to building materials. 

Habitat for Humanity of Northeast Georgia opened its first ReStore in April 1990. The store was open for business the first Saturday of each month and was located in Tom and Elizabeth Nalls’ converted “chicken house” on the Demorest Road. This warehouse closed operations in November 1992.

ReStore Mission

The ReStore mission is to honor the intent of our donors through responsible stewardship of their gifts by selling their items at a fair price so that we will increase sales and increase the number of homes we build each year.  In this way, we will advocate in our community on behalf of those in need of decent shelter.

Wake Chapel Christian Church, Fuquay-Varina, N.C. – a team of 17 youth on a Student Life mission spent 3 days in July sprucing up the ReStores! The group worked cleaning the yard and grounds, cleaning and organizing the warehouse and assisted with stocking and displaying the inventory. A lot of work was accomplished by the spirited young group. One youth was reported saying, “We’re growing closer together as a youth group and we’ve all grown closer to the Lord while we’re here, which is awesome!”
